upgrade sup2t supervisor on 6807


I want to upgrade the supervisor to the latest version.  Is it a good idea to upgarde the boot rom and FIELD PROGRAMMABLE DEVICE IMAGE    and ios to the latest.  I saw on cisco site that there are a later releases than what i have. like the boot strap is 12.2(50r)sy3 were there is 15.1 now and the FIELD PROGRAMMABLE DEVICE IMAGE    is also 151-2.sy1 were there is 151-2.sy2 now.  what is the procedure and steps to do this.


HelloNever ever done this


Never ever done this however is does state on CCO that:

"If you are running SIPs and SPAs on your switch and are upgrading your Cisco IOS image, you should download the FPD image package file before booting the switch using the new Cisco IOS release. If the SIP or SPA requires an FPD upgrade and the Cisco IOS image is unable to locate an FPD image package, the system messages will indicate that the FPD image is incompatible and you will need to go to the Cisco Software Center on to download the FPD image package for your Cisco IOS software release. An FPD incompatibility on a SPA disables all interfaces on that SPA until the incompatibility is addressed; an FPD incompatibility on a SIP disables all interfaces for all SPAs in the SIP until the incompatibility is addressed."

You need to know what is

You need to know what is required with upgrading the ROMmon because it ain't easy.  If you are able to "get away" with upgrading the ROMmon, then go for it.
